Deer Creek Ranch, Estate of the Day

Another gorgeous Montana hideaway, Deer Creek Ranch is nestled at the foothills of the Swan Mountain range near Bigfork. The 73-acre private estate has both a large log home and a private guest cabin. The home is being sold fully furnished including a collection of western art.  The home's style is the classic log cabin gone luxe with rough-hewn details like stone fireplaces and raw timbers. It also has a decidedly western turned upscale feel with details like a formal dining room with a log ceiling and a billiard room that includes  a log-framed bar. The estate is listed at $19.9 million. After the jump, a decorator version of the Wild West.

1. I'm certain it's nice considering it's out West, but don't you think there's a little to much wood?

10. Is this a ranch? This is a mountain getaway for the rich. A ranch is for livestock production.

13. OMG If I had to describe my dream home...this is it!! What I wouldn't give to have the money to buy it. I guess I have to keep on dreaming.

14. I wish they would donate the place to me. I would establish it as a world-wide health center for natural remedies, spiritual renewal, and wellness.

15. People: this is a house, a house full of stuff. Yes, it is beautiful, but get a grip, is that what truly matters in life? I admit, I complain now and then about my home being crowded, not enough storage space, too few closets, carpet a bit worn, landscaping overgrown, BUT, as I asked before, is that what truly matters in life? Not to me, and I pray, not to you -- My advise: store up your treasures in Heaven because you cannot take your earthly treasures with you. God Bless!

16. My husband is always looking at places for sale on line here in Montana. That is where we live now. Your home is absolutely gorgeous! I am sure you worked very hard for it to make it that way. I am sure you and your family went threw a lot of losses as well as gains. It takes a long time to get there! GOD BLESS YOU! Debbie

17. I find this to be overblown and much too large for any one family...i think its grotesque how wasteful and extravagant it is...i dont care how much money you have, it could be put to better use.
it also lacks personality and seems to have been decorated totally by the designer and not by the ppl living there, which i find cold...id rather stay in a hotel than live in a home i had no design say in.
shamefully wasteful and souless

19. What a waste! I am a native Montanan, and it breaks my heart to see what has happened to my beloved state. Bottom line is, my family and the people I grew up with can't afford to live there anymore. Our state has been taken over as a playground for the rich. Ick.
